Microsoft has recently expressed interested in acquiring Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment (WBIE), and with it, studios like Rocksteady (Batman Arkham Asylum) and Monolith (Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor).
The report comes from The Information, which suggests Microsoft would bolster its growing first-party offerings with Warner Bros’ studios. WBIE is owned by parent company AT&T, which is looking to reduce some of its debts with a quick sale.
The site reports that other publishers like Take-Two, EA and Activision Blizzard are also interested in acquiring WBIE.
Rumours suggest that a number of titles are in the works at Warner Bros’ various studios, including a Batman Court of Owls game from WB Montreal, a Suicide Squad title from Rocksteady and a Harry Potter RPG from Avalanche.
Microsoft will reveal a host of first-party games for Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC later this month.
